Then why buy a CD player at all? There are better ways to get audio from the computer to the console.
I'm assuming CDs need to be played!

It wasn't really relevant to mention the Networked bit, but I think it's a feature that makes it more versatile than the Tascam / Teac model.

This Numark CD player would fit the bill, I think.  We bought a couple a few years ago, and they've worked well in intermittent use.  They have nice big PLAY buttons, which are nice for hitting that cue in the semi-dark.  They'll play MP3s too, although I haven't actually tried that.  Compared to Denon, they are much less expensive.

There is balanced and unbalanced analog out, along with SPDIF.

  I have used the Tascam CD-01U PRO for a few years. It's never failed.

Good to see the positive points on the Tascam -

I considered using a laptop, but didn't want to have to "administer" something else, as well, it would need to sit someplace out of the way - the rack mount CD player seemed to "fit the bill" for out-of -the way, and no one can walk off with it.  Also, most of the bands will show up with CD of their music - to sell and to play during breaks.

I've got 1 of these and to be fair it works great... yes it might have KAM written on it but who cares if it does the job.

I'm considering using a rack-mount CD player for music before and during show breaks.  The Tascam CD-01U PRO (single disk) keeps popping up on internet searches.  The unit also plays mp3.

Anyone heard anything about this unit (good or bad)?  The cost (around $500.00) seems ok (sort of expensive for what it is...)

Are there other makes/models that could be considered? 

Thanks.

While a 1RU CDd player is VERY nice, 2RU CD players are dirt cheap new & used. I have the older version of the Numark referenced in another post, the CDN15 2RU. Doesn't do MP3s on the CD but does have no problem with commercial and computer generated disks. MP3s?, that's what an IPOD or MP3 player is for. An adaquate MP3 player can be had for $20-30 on sale. If it gets lost/stolen, it's an annoying bother, that's all.

Can anyone please tell me if this exists?

What I want is a rackmount cd player with a built in HD or solid state media player. Saves patching in an ipod or risking having it stolen or broken.

An Alesis Masterlink will do what you ask, although I'm not sure that's exactly what you have in mind.  There's still the problem of how to get the program off the iPod, and onto the HD.
